Legs, legs, legs

Sigh.  As promised, glute and thigh workout is done.  I did a combination of a few different things, but when the first exercise I did resulted in accidentally kicking Neon Toddler in the face I thought it was best to not do any more kick-based things.  Anyway, what I found hardest was this:

It’s only ten minutes but it really makes me realise how weak I actually am.  I mean, obviously I have strength in my legs from running, but nothing else.  So, I figure that it can only help my running to strengthen up my glutes, quads, hammies, and calves.  Particularly if I want to make it around the Round Rotherham 80km course in a Western States 100 qualifying time.  Which is 11 hours, and that’s my bronze time.  Ideally, I’d like to do it in 9 and a half, but still – that could be a stretch, and having stronger legs will certainly not harm my chances.  I also need to lean up (i.e. slim down, i.e lose weight).

So, here is today’s motivational poster.  It’s not a poster at

all, it’s just a bunch of numbers, aimed at publicly shaming me into changing them:

  • Weight: 75.9kgs
  • Chest: 91cms
  • Waist: 80cms
  • Hips: 98cms
  • Thighs: 113cms
  • (and for context) Height: 1.67m

And, on that note, our vegetable box was delivered today:

So, stay tuned for some delicious vegan fests over the next week.

      She’s alright. I think it was more of the shock that upset her as I barely touched her. It still doesn’t feel nice to kick your toddler in the face! But lots of hugs solved the tears. Thanks!

      This was a ‘gourmet’ box, so more unusual stuff that you get in the regular boxes anyway. Each week you get a card with some recipes, but there is a cookbook that I got (free) at the start called ‘The Veg Box Companion’ that has heaps of tips for cooking all kinds of veg, plus they have a whole pile of recipes on their website. I’ve never been stuck for what to make out of the more unusual stuff – they do make it really easy for you.
